A great classic drama
The film shows us in our humanness and demonstrates why we need the jury system, rather than just leaving matters to lawyers and judges.
The basis for the plot is that the defence lawyer had no motivation to give an adequate defence and that there was a reasonable person on the jury who posed the question, what do we actually know?
The film stands though, regardless of the jury question, as a masterpiece in drama.

Not so anticlimactic
I won't go as far as to say this movie explains why we can't have the fair jury altogether. The movie plot pushed their biases to the limit (which is always good), and perhaps more than anything, the movie shows how we humans often can't fairly evaluate many events around, be it something of no importance or someone's life in question
